The beauty of simplicity

What do you think of this chair?


This is from a cottage in Nova Scotia which was featured in the NYT. The chair was made in honour of the owner’s birth, by his father’s roommate at Harvard, in 1969.

I love the simplicity and elegance of the design. A long plank for the back, a smaller one for the seat and two legs. Voila! A chair! A design like this is so easily do-able; I’m not sure how sturdy it would be, though. I’m quite tempted to ask our carpenter to do something similar for us with the piles of left-over wood we have stashed in our house.

The house itself is very lovely, with lots of vintage and modern pieces blending seamlessly into the decor. I find that blue colour on the wall very soothing and it is magic with the outdoors. See the full house tour here.
